Solution to Wall Cavity Mold

Have you ever been concerned about mold growth inside the walls of your home? Here in Hawaii, the moisture levels are relatively high in many areas around the state. That moisture helps to create the beautiful landscapes and rainbows that Hawaii is known for, but it also results in unwanted mold growth.

The CDC indicated: “In 2004 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) found there was sufficient evidence to link indoor exposure to mold with upper respiratory tract symptoms, cough, and wheeze in otherwise healthy people; with asthma symptoms in people with asthma; and with hypersensitivity pneumonitis in individuals susceptible to that immune-mediated condition. The IOM also found limited or suggestive evidence linking indoor mold exposure and respiratory illness in otherwise healthy children.”

Interior wall cavity mold growth in traditionally built home

Traditional home building methods creates space inside the interior wall cavities. Once moisture is introduced, the closed cavity is ripe for mold growth. The results often are ongoing respiratory problems for the home dwellers and an overall decrease in home comfort and life fulfillment.
